While the encyclopedia attempts to minimize scientific jargon, readers will encounter numerous technical terms related to anatomy and physiology throughout the volume. To assist readers in placing physiological terms in their proper context, we have created a number of detailed anatomical drawings. These can be found on pages 65-70, 159-161, 191, and 199-201. Readers are urged to make heavy use of these drawings. In addition, terms are defined in the Glossary at the back of the book.
